Acting for the Courtroom

Torres Park Plaza
Getting there
8301 W Judge Perez Dr, Chalmette, LA

Have you ever thought about your opening and closing statement as an act? A scene from a movie? You've seen Matthew McConaughey in A Time to Kill or Robert Downey Jr. in The Judge. The performances were memorable to say the least. You have been taught how to write a great opening and closing statement but I'd like to share with you how to deliver that speech with intensity, intrigue, and persuasiveness. As an actor for the stage and screen, I've developed an acting technique over the 21 years I've been in this business and have been teaching actors this technique for years. Being friends with a ton of attorneys I started to ask them if someone was teaching this technique to Laywers for the courtroom and to my surprise no one was. So I've take my acting technique and redesigned my approach to make it more appropriate for the courtroom. Join me April 9th for a complete breakdown of how to approach your opening and closing statement from an acting perspective. I am going to be going over the following: How to memorize your script easily. How to get into character How to use vocal inflection to draw your audience in. How to understand your body and your leading center. Techniques on performing that will get you out of your head and into your body. We will have a question and answer session at the end as well.
